The New York Toy Fair took place this past weekend, and the LEGO fan community is abuzz talking about all the new sets and themes that were just revealed. Some of the sets we have seen at the German Toy Fair already (see: LEGO German Toy Fair New LEGO Sets & More!), while others are completely new revelations.

LEGO COLLECTIBLE MINIFIGURES SERIES 17: The BrickShow also posted a picture of Series 17 of the LEGO Collectible Minifigures. Looks like a very nice assortment of characters and new accessories! And there is also a mystery figure, that I guess will be revealed later.

As you can see, there is a staggering amount of new LEGO sets coming later this year, so it is a good idea to start planning what you are going to get. What do you think?

That pirate ship looks fabulous, but also incredibly fragile. I think the best part is the tattered sails. I really like the series 17 minifigs. Want all of them! The City sets look good. Star Wars meh. Really looking forward to the Ninjago Movie sets!

The Pirate Ship also looks fragile to me, but I recently read it was designed by Marcos Bessa, who is known for his excellent set designs. We will just have to wait and see until we get some reviews. I agree that the Series 17 Minifigures look great. I will definitely want all of them! The Ninjago Movie sets were on display, but photography was strictly forbidden. Those who have seen them however say that they look incredible. 😀

The Nexo knights summer sets look better than the first wave in January.( very Tempting) The Star Wars sets as always is going to be to expensive for my wallet . The creator and the City sets , well I have mixed feelings about that. As alway LEGO comes up with some interesting sets.

I agree that the Nexo Knights sets look very interesting. I especially like the The Stone Colossus of Ultimate Destruction – that must be the best name given to a LEGO set ever. 😈

Is there a video link for the friends sets? I’m really excited about the new friends hospital, as well as the all the snow resort sets.

For some reason neither the BrickShow now others have taken video footage of the Friends sets. Sigh… guys… all they care about is Star Wars and Super Heroes. 🙄

However Brickset posted the images of the sets in their database, and also have a round-up in this article, but it’s only the box images: http://brickset.com/article/26705/summer-friends-elves-and-disney-princess-images

Okay, I just found a better resource for you at the Brothers-Brick. Not video, but good pictures of the displayed LEGO Friends sets: http://www.brothers-brick.com/2017/02/18/summer-2017-lego-friends-sets-revealed-new-york-toy-fair-2017-news/

Thanks for this link. Those pictures are the best by far that I’ve seen; especially of the hospital. I’ve been wishing for a Lego hospital since I was 8… (needless to say I was in my dark ages when the City hospital was released). So I am really excited about getting this one, and also the winter sets to go with my winter village. I don’t mind the minidolls mixing in with my minifigs in my winter village as they have such lovely winter outfits. Plus the kids enjoy seeing them there and placing their own characters in the village.

I will add that in our family we all love the Elves sets and are looking forward to the new wave. They have proved ‘more playable’ overall, especially the dragons, for my eldest daughter (age 9) than her friends and city sets, and the water dragon set finally got my younger daughter (6) truly interested in lego (she was resisting strongly before then – a disappointment I had to hide!). My son (4) only has a few tiny sets so far but the new jungle theme will be absolutely perfect for him to receive as his first big lego set, for his birthday at the end of the year. I can’t imagine a more exciting theme for us to give him as we would all get more enjoyment out of it than if he were to receive police or fire brigade, for example, which he would probably like but the rest of us would not be that interested in. (Eventually he will add those to his collection)

For a four-year-old the jungle theme can really ignite the imagination. The experience of getting a set like that can stay with him for the rest of his life. Nice to hear that both of your girls are having fun with the Elves sets. They are definitely imaginative, beautiful and enchanted. 🙂

Yeah, a hospital has been long overdue! I’m happy to see the wheelchair being used again. In my city minifigs and mini-dolls coexist peacefully as well. I consider them teenagers. They look tall, skinny, and out of place in the real world too. 🙄

Legostuff71 February 20, 2017 at 4:58 PM

I love the cargo terminal , but, not the price. I am looking at maybe getting the smaller sets both for jungle and Coast guard city sets.

Reply

admin February 20, 2017 at 9:43 PM

If you wait long enough, I’m sure they will be on sale. Usually the year-end holiday season is a good time to get sets that you feel are too expensive at the original price. 🙂

The series 17 look fantastic but the Silent Mary is ill fated I think. price point being too high and it is definitely not a playable set at any length. Nexo Knights are going to be a summertime smash.

Reply

admin February 20, 2017 at 9:44 PM

Yeah, Nexo Knights looks great. I’m also iffy about the ship. It just looks like a troublesome display piece.

Reply

Carbo February 21, 2017 at 8:37 AM

I think that the Nexo Knights, Batman Movie, and Series 17 look the best. I especially love the Batwing! Darth Vader’s Transformation and the Republic Fighter Tank also look pretty good. This sure is a great summer line up!

Reply

admin February 21, 2017 at 11:24 AM

Yes, there is a lot to choose from! It is also nice that there is something in every price-range. 🙂

I really want the Lego creator modern home, it looks awesome!

BLProductions February 21, 2017 at 9:59 PM

There certainly was a lot of interesting stuff on display. I’ll have to split this comment, as my thoughts are numerous. 🙂
Based on all the Technic pieces I see on it, I think the Silent Mary should hold together okay. The main mast breaking seems to be a primary play function. I can’t see a set that falls apart too easily making it past LEGO’s QC… hopefully. I do like all the intricate details though.
Elves keeps getting better in my opinion, as these summer sets look excellent. The colors are really nice, especially on the 41188 The Goblin King’s Castle, as Spring Yellowish Green remains a fairly rare color, and there are some neat functions to the set as well. I did not expect to see Emily Jones wielding a sword, though. Too bad she’s still smiling.
For Minecraft, the Ocean Monument is a great source of Sand Green bricks, and I think the Guardians are pretty well designed. Steve and Alex still need some new skins, though. You mentioned #21137 the Mountain Cave, but I haven’t seen any pictures of it… was it on display?
I like the new designs for Star Wars, especially that Scout Trooper on Speeder Bike (75532). It’s my favorite of all the SW Buildable Figures, mostly because it includes a vehicle in scale with the figure. The Freemaker Adventures sets have interesting designs, too, although two near-identical Palpatines in one wave of sets is odd, given his normal rarity.
Series 17 looks cool (the Corn-guy is funny); I like the Pastry Chef and the person holding a sword in the rear middle. I read the mystery figure is possibly a “highwayman”, although the silhouette doesn’t match that. 😕

I have a few more remarks, mostly about prices.
The 21035 Guggenheim Museum’s price and piece count was surprising for me: $80 for 744 pieces is a little high, but at least the set looks excellent. The Arc de Triomphe looks like an interesting build. The use of rock-bearing bottoms is brilliant.
I think the Jungle sets are the best of City this year, as they look more adventurous than even the Volcano line. I really like the 60161 Exploration Site, but the $120 for 813 pieces is simply not justified in my opinion. $100 would make more sense, as there aren’t that many large molded parts.
Sadly, I’m not a fan of the Technic sets. The 42070 6×6 Tow-Truck is poorly priced. The PFs are worth about $50, which added to $190 for the pieces makes only $240, not $290. And I can’t believe the 42065 RC Racer is $100 for only 370 pieces – that’s a worse deal than 42070! Hopefully 42069 will be priced better – though for $180 it better have around 1800 pieces.
Well, that sums up my thoughts; hopefully they aren’t too long. 😉
Also, admin, Brickset has changed #42068 to “Airport Rescue Vehicle,” so I’m sure that’s the official name; the article still has “Fire” though. 🙂

admin February 22, 2017 at 12:45 PM

Yeah, that Exploration Site looks really interesting, and also seem to have a lot of play-features. The caves (or whatever those are) look bigger than the volcano in the Volcano Exploration sets! I think it will be fun. I will change the name of #42068. I think I chanced it in the previous article, but I forgot to update it here. Looks like we will have a great and expensive summer! 😀

76037 is infamous for being frustratingly fragile…

http://brickset.com/sets/76037-1/Rhino-and-Sandman-Super-Villain-Team-up

And 6982 also seems pretty underdeveloped…

http://brickset.com/sets/6982-1/Explorien-Starship

The silhouette could match a highwayman fairly well if he’d wear a cape, I think. and the silhouette somewhat extended…

Indeed, LEGO does continue to release some flimsy sets in their regular line, but I think (or at least, I hope) they have higher standards for exclusives.

Reply

admin February 22, 2017 at 12:41 PM

Yeah, it’s crazy that the Minecraft Ocean Monument has so many sand green parts! I think even non-Minecraft fans will be interested in that! I thought I saw a set that looked like the Mountain Cave, but I could be wrong. I’m happy that The Freemaker Adventures continues. It was a fun little sidekick of regular Star Wars. I also really like the Pastry Chef. Will go straight into the Assembly Square bakery! I also read that the mystery figure is a highwayman, but we shall see. I’m not sure why they would keep it a mystery.
